Junior Crew Supporters are individual children who are directly connected to a member of Race Crew in the current Clipper Race.
They might be for example sons, daughters, nephews, nieces, godchildren, siblings or close family friends of Race Crew.
The activities are aimed at children aged 5 to 12 and their family, however those under 16 may also register and take part. Children are an important part of the Clipper Race family and Junior Crew Supporters activities provide a way to connect further with the race and help them feel a part of the Clipper Race family while their loved one is at sea.
Those who register as Junior Crew Supporters will be able to take part in challenges and activities which will be emailed to their parent/guardian at the start of each race Leg. The deadline for completing each challenge and emailing responses back will coincide with the end of that Leg when a winner will be drawn from all entries received.
Challenges will be based on experiences that our very own Clipper Race Crew might encounter as well as activities linked to sailing and the countries each Leg will visit. There is no requirement to attend Host Port stopovers to take part, as all activities can be carried out at home and participants may need help from their family with parts of the challenges.
Junior Crew Supporters will be able to take on as many challenges as they wish throughout the whole 11-month Clipper Race experience. Why not try to complete your very own circumnavigation and take part in all the challenges?
How do I take part?
To get started please ask your parent/guardian to fill out the registration form found below to give their consent and opt in to take part. After registering you will receive confirmation once it has been processed by our Race Crew Supporters Coordinator, Ruth Charles.
Participant’s details will only be held for the duration that they participate in the Junior Crew Supporters challenges and activities for the current Clipper Race, and we will only communicate with those taking part via the parent/guardian that gave consent.
